This is a really good recipe. I always change mine around a little. I actually added more spices, plus a little paprika. Yum.

Tastes great! In a small crockpot I used 3/4 lb grass finished ground beef, 1 can blended diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, 1 can ranchero chili beans, 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion and garlic powders, 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt and ground black pepper. Used the oregano and cocoa. Very tasty.

This is a great recipe for a traditional chili con carne. Bonus!!! - Its quick to make and even better reheated. I increased the baking cocoa to a tablespoon as I love the way it blends with the other spices. I served cornbread and honey as a side. If its too spicy for your taste, give it a dollop of sour cream. MMMMMMgood.

This is my go-to chili recipe - I LOVE it! I make a double batch in the slow cooker with lean ground turkey and freeze individual servings for later. Healthy and delish! :)
